HDMI v USB

Can BB HDMI cable be used to transfer documents, photos, contacts etc from a PC or laptop onto Playbook? HDMI is much faster than USB, so the transfer would be very fast, and take very little time.

Or, HDMI should be used only for a transfer of movies, songs, games from a TV, PC, DVD player onto Playbook, and viewing photos etc from a Playbook on a big screen, like a monitor or TV.

Correct.


Another fast data transfer method is via WiFi sharing with your PC/laptop
